THE CEMETERY CLUB
10 – 16th March 2019, Churchill Theatre
It sounds a bit heavy to say that every month, 3 Jewish widows visit their husbands’ graves, but this comedy drama is full of good humour. Ida is the home maker type, Lucille imagines that every man is eyeing her up and Doris likes everything to be done properly. The wisecracks are flowing until one day Sam the butcher – a man! – arrives to visit his wife‘s grave and upsets the apple cart. To make matters worse, one day Sam arrives with Mildred!! Despite all this – life goes on.

it runs in the family
26th May – 1st June 2019, Churchill Theatre
Set in a hospital, It Runs in the Family contains the usual assortment of farcical nuts running in and out of doors mistaking everybody for someone else, as Dr. Mortimore tries to fend off a paternity suit, an ex wife, a punkish son and various other lunatics so that he may, at last, deliver the Ponsonby Lecture in an international conference.
